Have you ever heard the statement that it's hard to hit a moving target, well that's a true statement. When things sit still, they become stagnate and lethargic. The more you move the further you make and the better off you are in the end.
If you're at home sitting on the couch and wondering why on Earth business won't come to you, then I think you're in the wrong business. At the very least you have the wrong idea about how this whole thing works and perhaps it's time to seriously think about where you want to be. If you're not where you want to be, then moving is the best way to get there.
Plain and simple one of the best statements I have heard about this business is that activity breeds activity. Call it luck, call it karma, or just call it getting off your lazy ass and creating an opportunity by putting your face in front of people. No matter how you slice it, if you try this simple process, good things just seem to happen.
The fact of the matter is that it's hard to hit a moving target, but it seems like everything want to just for the challenge. And for what ever reason, if you are active in the market and doing the right things, good things will be drawn your way like gravity. It might not even come directly from what you are doing, but it will come.
If you send out post cards to apartments and your farm areas, for some reason, you will get calls even if it's not from any of these people. While out previewing, on several occasions, I have run into people who stopped to pick up a flyer from the home I was taking a look at. While you're blogging your heart out, people will register on your website.
In the end, it doesn't matter where it comes from, just as long as it comes your way. A lead is a lead and they are all worth having. But you have to be active in order to make things happen, it's just the basic law of attraction.
